DRAKE MAGAZINE | COVER SPRING 2013

DRAKE MAGAZINE COVER SHOT
Spring 2013 Issue

I’m very excited to see one of my images on the new Spring 2013 cover of the The Drake Magazine!! It’s been a great publication for many years, one that I eagerly look forward too as both a fisherman and photographer. For me its a humbling honor for any of my images to make into print ,and making the cover has always been a lifetime goal of mine.

This image below is of good friend ,and phenomenal angler, Millie Jo Paini fishing her beloved Henry’s Fork river. It was a great hatch that day and both Mille and husband Rich were out doing what they both love to do, “play the game ” (dry fly fishing) on the famous Railroad ranch section. There are a few other goodies inside from BGP, including a little somethin’ somethin’ by friends Johnny Pares and Rita Rose Adams on dry fly bonefish from a recent trip to Casa and Playa Blanca in the Yucatan. The shot was very challenging for many reasons. It didn’t come easy and we spend days trying to get it. After dozens of hook-ups and we finally managed to get a few that really show the fully open mouth of a Bonefish trying to eat from the surface. It was one of the most amazing fly fishing experiences I’ve seen. I know I won’t look at bonefish the same way ever again. Rounding out the issue is buddy Tom Watkins over at the good ol’ TroutHunter freezing on the pages in the spectrum section. Nothing like a brisk mid-winters day of fishing on the Henry’s Fork. Huge thanks all the anglers for doing what you do and letting me document it with my camera, without you these images and adventures would never happen.

This issue is action packed, lots of solid content from some of the most talented writers and photographers in the industry. So head down to your local fly shop and grab a copy today, or better yet, get a subscription!.. hell, snag a shirt too.

2012 IFTD DRAKE VIDEO AWARDS | BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY WINNER

BRYAN GREGSON PHOTOGRAPHY & DETONATION STUDIOS  | 2012 IFTD DRAKE VIDEO AWARD BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY!

“The Last Salmon Forest”  chapter 1 takes home ‘Best Cinematography” at this years 2012 IFTD Drake magazine Flyfishing video awards in Reno!

2012 IFTD Drake Film AwardsThis past July I had the opportunity to be involved with Ian Majszak at Detonation Studios for a project in Alaska. The subject spotlight is on the Tongass National Forest. It’s been an amazing adventure so far it will continue when we pic

We returned home to the lower 48 with very little time before we had to sent off the film,to the Drake magazine Flyfishing. Having been apart of several 72 hours of fun film contests we’ve been training for this, right? By sheer luck we made the deadline.  Ian sums it up nicely …

“after a grueling but rewarding 11 day shoot in South East Alaska’s Tongass National Forest we were invited to submit a digital short for The Drake film awards. With only a handful of days to edit this is our submission that won an award for Best Cinematography.”
Gratitude – To all the phenomenal Alaskans that put a roof over our head, kept us fed and opened up their lives to us. Without their support this project would not of been possible.”

 

The Tongass Issue | Tongass 77

iPhone | Bryan Gregson Photography

This issue is not on the radar from most of the fishing world. Shadowed by the excellent Pebble Mine momentum, the Tongass 77 sits and waits for a voice. The Tongass is rare, it is also the last of its kind on Earth, and urgently needs our voice!!  As the good folks over at American Salmon Forest tell it:

“At nearly 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska is our country’s largest and most unique national forest. This magnificent landscape of western hemlock, Sitka spruce, western red cedar and yellow cedar trees is part of the world’s largest remaining intact temperate rain forest – and hosts some of the rarest ecosystems on the planet.”

The Tongass National Forest is owned by all of us who call the United States our home. The time is now to stand-up and get involved …  help protect what is yours.

“The Tongass is America’s salmon forest and one of the few places in the world where wild salmon and trout still thrive. Some 65 percent of  Tongass salmon and trout habitat is not Congressionally protected at the watershed scale, and is currently open to development activities that could harm fish. It’s time for Congress to better protect the richest resource of the Tongass: wild salmon.”

– Tim Bristol | Trout Unlimited | Alaska Program Director
